  • New Rumi Spelling (Malay: Ejaan Rumi Baharu) is the most recent spelling reform of Rumi script (Latin derived Malay script) in Malaysia. It was adopted in 1972 to replace both the Za'ba and Congress spelling systems. Historically, the two major Malay-speaking countries, Indonesia and Malaysia, were divided between two colonial administrations, the Dutch and the British. Thus, the development of spelling systems for Rumi script were greatly influenced by the orthographies of their respective colonial tongues. Shortly after the end of Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation in 1966, a common spelling system became among the first items on the agenda of a detente between the two countries. The new spelling system, known as 'New Rumi Spelling' in Malaysia and 'Perfected Spelling System' in Indonesia, was officially announced in both countries on 16 August 1972. Although the representations of speech sounds are now largely identical in the Indonesian and Malaysian varieties, a number of minor spelling differences remain. (en)
